Brief Bio:
Ms. Monica Narang graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in international business from the University of Denver. She worked as a collaborative fellow at the National Endowment for Financial Education in Colorado, where she taught important principles of financial education to high school students. Recently, she worked as an english teacher at junior and senior high schools in Osaka, Japan with the Japan Exchange and Teaching Program. One of the highlights of teaching English in Osaka was when she arranged a lecture by Vikas Swarup, the Consulate General of India and author of the novel "Q&A" (and basis for the screenplay of the film Slumdog Millionaire), for Osaka City high school students and faculty. She enjoys volunteering and taught english to immigrants and refugees at the Emily Griffith Opportunity School in Denver, Colorado. In the future, she would like to work on a Master's in education, which could lead towards a Ph.D. She also hopes to continue her research in the field of education relating to both India and Japan. She also hopes to bring education ideas from India back to the United States to help enhance the school system in her home country.
